    Post Folder redirection not working

    Hi guys,

    trying to set a folder redirection for the My Documents folder to a users network drive on the local server. I already have the users home folder mapped to N: which works fine

    I have disabled offline files as a computer settings and set a folder redirection in the user side under Policies - Windows Settings - Folder redirection - My Documents to

    1.Basic - redirect everyones folder to the same location
    2.Create a folder for each user under root path
    3.Root path as \\servername\Users\Students\Work

    Am I missing something here? Also this is in a test OU so no other policies are affecting the user or computer

    Any ideas would be greatly received!

    "redirect everyones folder to the same location" setting shouldn't need %username% as the user specific stuff gets appended automatically.

    Can the users in question access the share ok using UNC? Any events in eventviewer about failed redirection?
